How The World Has Changed and So Must You!…
“We are living in a very different world today than we were just a decade ago. We’re at the beginning of a whole new time. We are no longer in the Industrial Age; we are in the Ideas Economy and everything has changed.” Says Daniel Priestley, Author of “Become a Key Person of Influence.”
We are living in different times now – there are new concepts to understand and you must let old ideas go quickly. Decisions that you made about your business career, where you lived, the technology in use and the people you followed, were all based upon a world that really does not exist any longer. You may have purchased software say five years ago for £10k+ but this has now been taken over by free web-based software today.
If experts of five years ago didn’t change their business model, then they are now in a real quandary! Many countries that offered great wealth-creating business opportunities five years ago could now be facing bankruptcy. “The poor countries of just a few years ago are the powerhouses of tomorrow’s free markets.”
In 1997, Steve Jobs took over Apple and one of the first things he did was to close down the Apple Museum in the foyer where people were constantly reminded of a company that was living in its past. He only wanted everyone to be thinking of the future!
If you were now starting a new business just imagine how:-
- you could position yourself as a Key Person of Influence (KPI) in your field within the next twelve months
- you could attract opportunities, connections, ideas and resources that mean you would be able to do what you love and get paid what you are worth.
- you would discover that it’s the people who are doing what they LOVE who are thriving
- If it feels like hard work then you will always get overtaken by the person that has a passion for it.
Daniel Priestley “believes that never in history has there been a better time to tap into your passion and inspiration to form an enterprise that sets you free from “work”. However, before you can truly make it a success you need to become known as a Key Person of Influence in that field.”
In every industry there are ‘Key People of Influence’
- Their names come up in conversation … for all the right reasons
- They attract opportunities … the right sort
- They earn more money … and it isn’t a struggle
- They enjoy a special status in their chosen field
- They are well connected, well known, well regarded and highly valued
- They get invited to be in the best teams and projects, often writing their own terms.
- They have more fun and get invited on trips away
- People buy them dinner and drinks
- They are treated with respect
Many people wait around thinking it takes years to become a Key Person in their field, however, the reality is that the greatest entrepreneurs on earth spend most of their time positioning themselves as the most important person in their industry. Think of Branson, Soros, Buffett, Jobs and Trump; they all do their best to be known as:-
“The Key Person Of Influence In Their Industries”
In Day 3 of my Guide I will refer to a series of questions which were taken from the book “Become a person of influence” written by Daniel Priestley
